Obama Campaign Sues to Restrict Military Voting

Comments Off on Obama Campaign Sues to Restrict Military Voting

You just never know what these guys will do next do we?  They are probably doing this because the majority of the military will vote Republican. Obama has alienated many in the military as well as Catholics, Jews, etc.

While Barack Obama and the Democrats like to give lip service to our men and women in uniform, it’s what they do they betrays their rhetoric. He likes to get his picture with troops even though behind closed doors they are giving him the finger and sleeping during his speeches. This all makes things quite interesting when both the Obama campaign and the Democrat party are suing to restrict the military’s ability to vote in the upcoming election.

Breitbart.com reports,

On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state’s law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is “arbitrary” with “no discernible rational basis.”

Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as “arbitrary” and having “no discernible rational basis”, I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women’s time and their obligations to their sworn duty.

The National Defense Committee reports:

[f]or each of the last three years, the Department of Defense’s Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote.

So now we see the Democrat playbook come out again. We see the praise of the lips while they drive the knife into the back of our service men and women that they are using abroad in unconsitutional wars. While I disagree with Mike Flynn that they “have more right to vote than the rest of us,” I emphatically agree that they have the right to vote and that right should be defended by those of us at home.

While Republicans have been battling for Voter ID laws, maybe they should include in that battle protection of the military’s vote. While all of this is beneath

We all know what is coming in November. The race will probably be close and this is the Chicago style thuggery of applying pressure where the Democrats can in order to cheat in the elections. Make no mistake about it, attempts to restrict the military’s vote is an attempt at voter fraud.

US Senate blocks Obama-backed cybersecurity bill

Comments Off on US Senate blocks Obama-backed cybersecurity bill

I’m sure Obama will just go ahead and install all this anyway, he’s good at that. That kills that gun control amendment they tried to sneak thru on this bill limiting magazines to 10 shots.

A cybersecurity bill sought by President Barack Obama as critical to national defense was blocked Thursday in the Senate, drawing an angry response from the White House.

The legislation failed to advance amid opposition from an unusual coalition of civil libertarians — who feared it could allow too much government snooping — and conservatives who said it would create a new bureaucracy.

The bill needed 60 votes in the 100-member Senate to advance under rules in the chamber, but got only 52. The failure came despite pleas from Obama and top US defense officials.

After the vote, the White House blamed “an overwhelming majority of Senate Republicans” for blocking the bill, which it said would have protected the nation “from potentially catastrophic cyber attacks.”

The bill was a “comprehensive piece of cybersecurity legislation” but it was foiled by “the politics of obstructionism, driven by special interest groups seeking to avoid accountability,” a White House statement said.

The failure to move forward, the White House said, is “a profound disappointment.”

‘We’re Still Home of the Brave, But We’re Not the Land of the Free Anymore’

Comments Off on ‘We’re Still Home of the Brave, But We’re Not the Land of the Free Anymore’

Shame on John Boehner…..

A group of freshmen congressmen on Wednesday said that a regulation issued under Obamacare by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has taken freedom of religion away from Americans.

The regulation that requires health plans to offer sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortifacients free of charge became effective today, Aug. 1. It has been unanimously denounced by the Catholic bishops of the United States as “unjust and illegal mandate” that forces Catholic individuals, business owners and institutions to act against the teachings of their faith.

“We’re still home of the brave, but we’re not the land of the free anymore,” said Rep. Billy Long (R.-Mo.)

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives could stop this regulation that Republican members and the Catholic Church have called an attack on religious liberty by prohibiting funding for it in the next continuing resolution to fund the government after Sept. 30. However, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), and other House Republicans have indicated  that they will fund the implementation of the regulation.

Despite his apparent intention to fund it, Boehner himself has described the regulation as “an unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country.”

On Tuesday, Rep. Long was joined at the U.S. Capitol in denouncing the regulation by Representatives Mike Kelly (R.-Pa.), Austin Scott (R-Ga.), Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), Sandy Adams (R-Fla.), Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.), Steve Pearce (R-N.M.), Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.), Ann Marie Buerkle (R-N.Y.), and Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) in vowing to stand against the regulation.

“It’s outrageous that this administration believes it’s within their power to force people to violate their right of religion if it interferes with this administration’s agenda,” said Nunnelee.  “It should disturb people of all faiths, or for that matter people of no faith at all, that President Obama has such a low opinion of the First Amendment that he would trample on these rights.”

At least 154 members of Congress have already denounced the HHS “preventive services” regulation that mandates that nearly all health insurance plans in the United States must offer sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortion-inducing drugs free of charge.

“The federal government was put in place to protect our rights, not to grant those rights,” Buerkle added.

Rep. Kelly said August 1 would now forever be ingrained in American history.

“I know in your mind you can think of the times that America was attacked: one is December 7th, that’s the Pearl Harbor date,” he said.  “The other is September 11th, and that’s the day of the terrorist attack.”

“I want you to remember August 1, 2012, the attack on our religious freedom,” said Kelly.   “That is a date that will live in infamy along with those other dates.”

“The question is if not us, who, if not now, when?” Kelly said.  “It is our turn, there is no option, we have to stand up now and defend our Constitution.”

Poll: Views on gun laws unchanged after Aurora theater massacre

Comments Off on Poll: Views on gun laws unchanged after Aurora theater massacre

Of course it is about the same…..we want to be able to defend ourselves…..the answer is more concealed carry, yes, even in theaters. Not more gun control and errosion of the 2nd amendment.

The movie theater massacre in Aurora, Colo., has had no significant impact on public views on the issue of gun control and gun rights, according to a new poll released Monday.

The poll by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press found that 47 percent of respondents say it’s more important to control gun ownership, while 46 percent say it’s more important to protect the rights of Americans who own guns. That is virtually unchanged from a survey in April, when 45 percent prioritized gun control and 49 percent gun rights.

Dhavan Shah, a communications and political science professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said the results show that despite tragedies like the July 20 massacre in Aurora, which left 12 dead and scores wounded, public opinion on guns is deep-seated and rigid.

“News events and disruptions in the media don’t do a lot to shift those opinions,” Shah told NBC News. “Those shifts tend to be more gradual.”

Other recent major shootings also had little effect on public opinion about gun laws. According to Pew surveys, there was no significant change in the balance of opinion about gun rights and gun control after the January 2011 shooting in Tucson, Ariz., in which U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was injured. Nor was there a spike in support for gun control following the shooting at Virginia Tech University in April 2007.

The latest Pew survey, conducted July 26-29 among 1,010 adults in the U.S., also showed that relatively few Americans view the shooting in Aurora as part of a broader social problem. Rather, 67 percent said that shootings like this are isolated acts perpetrated by troubled individuals.

This is similar to public reaction after the Tucson and Virginia Tech shootings, when 58 percent and 47 percent of poll respondents, respectively, viewed them as isolated act by troubled individuals.

(So the shootings are not having the effect on the American public that the elite wanted….too bad)

Here are a few comments:

Lt Scrounge-4042308

Either George Washington or Thomas Jefferson wrote that the main reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is to allow them the protect themselves from those who would impose tyranny upon them, including their own government. The history of “gun control” is filled with one country after another wherein the citizenry was disarmed and then exterminated. Why is it that you think that people are pushing to arm the Syrian rebels so that the government troops won’t be able to massacre them at will?

As for taking on the US military, if a few thousand semi illiterate Afghanis can give them the kind of trouble that they’ve been having in Afghanistan, what will a few MILLION well trained and PO’d American veterans (thousands of whom are retired Special Ops guys) are going to do?

Wit our current failure in the White House, the necessity of owning fire arms has increased at least threefold. Gun laws are enforceable only for those who respect the law.

“This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient and the world will follow out lead into the future.”

Quote from ADOLF HITLER, 1935

First they have you register them so they know where they are when they want to confiscate them. If only 10 out of every 100 Jews in Europe were armed then out of the 6,000,000 murdered there would have been 600,000 armed individuals to stand up to the Gestapo and SS. The Holocaust wold never have happened.
